Here in North Wales we have an excellent network of charities and bodies that are involved with environmental management and conservation work. These include but are not limited to the Snowdonia Society, Snowdonia National Park, National Trust, North Wales Wildlife Trust and the RSPB to name just a few.
During your week with us, we’ll be looking at a number of different aspects of the environmental conservation in the area. The activities may include things like path maintenance, wildlife surveying and identification sessions, removal of invasive species, forestry, litter picks and beach cleans and managing livestock in an upland environment. Exactly what gets covered will depend on what our local charities and groups think would be appropriate at the time, but it will certainly be appropriate and relevant to the aims of the week.
The cost of the residential includes all food, accommodation and transport during the week (transport to/from Snowdonia is not included, though a train station pick up can be arranged).
